Students Protest Against ‘out-of-syllabus’ Questionnaire for MPhil Test
Lahore :23 July : Students who have attempted entry test of M Phil for Communication Studies at Punjab University Institute of Communication Studies protested against the out-of-syllabus questions in the test.
The entry test was held on Monday in which two categories of MPhil including Research Track and Professional Track were held. However, the candidates of Professional Track program entry test claimed that the test was totally theory based and most of the questions belonged to Research Track program.
The students blamed that administration prepared professional track entry test favourable for the students of Research track because there were only 15 seats of Research track and 25 for professional track. This was the main reason that most of the questions were related to research track program, students said.

One of the protesters said the level of entry test was not according to Masters degree holders. “MPhil passed students could solve this entry test for Professional track” he said. He added that in Professional Track, people who appeared having a background of journalism studies did not find any question pertaining to TV and Newspaper.

Another student demanded administration and authorities to retake the Professional track entry test. He also demanded PU ICS administration to increase the seats for MPhil as 40 seats after two years were not enough for hundreds of students.

PU ICS’s entry test for MPhil sparks controversy every time when admissions for MPhil are conducted in the department. In 2011, the entry test for MPhil was leaked much before the entry test date. In 2009, there were misappropriations in the MPhil admission.
